The International Medieval Congress (IMC) is organised and administered by the Institute for Medieval Studies (IMS). Since its start in 1994, the Congress has established itself as an annual event with an attendance of over 1,800 medievalists from all over the world. It is the largest conference of its kind in Europe.
Journal of Medieval Iberian Studies: Best Article Prize (2015). The editors of the Journal of Medieval Iberian Studies (JMIS) and Routledge announce the first annual $500 prize for the most outstanding article published in JMIS in 2015.
All articles published in JMIS in 2015 will automatically be considered for the Best Article Prize, and all submissions received during the calendar year 2014 will be considered for publication in 2015.
We welcome work that engages peninsular Iberia in relation to other parts of the ‘post-classical’ world, which explores links of colonization and exchange with the Maghreb, addresses Iberia’s presence in the Mediterranean, or adopts a transatlantic frame.
The prize will be awarded by a panel of judges appointed by the Editor-in-Chief of JMIS. The judges’ decision will be final, and no correspondence will be entered into.
All submissions should be uploaded electronically through our online submission system (http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/jmis).
The Journal of Medieval Iberian Studies (JMIS) is an interdisciplinary journal for innovative scholarship on the multiple languages, cultures, and historical processes of the Iberian Peninsula, and the zones with which it was in contact. We encourage submission of all innovative scholarship of interest to the community of medievalists and Iberianists. JMIS, which aims to bring theoretically informed approaches into creative contact with more empirically minded scholarship, encompasses archaeology, art and architecture, music, philosophy and religious studies, as well as history, codicology, manuscript studies and the multiple Arabic, Latin, Romance, and Hebrew linguistic and literary traditions of Iberia.

The Fundación Carolina (Spain) has released its call for scholarship applications, 2015-2016, in a variety of fields including “artes, humanidades, y comunicación”. Applications are not limited to individuals in Spanish-speaking countries; the Fundación Carolina invites applications from Brazilian scholars, too.
The range of support appears to extend, for example, to students working on doctoral degrees as well as to postdoctoral applicants.
